All Of America Was Baracking This Week
I am not the greatest fan of Senator Barack Obama. Lord knows, along with a fifty dollar donation after a particularly nasty comment about his character from his political opponent Senator Hillary Clinton, I have given him plenty of static through this blog and through discussions with friends and family. But I have to admit to my own hopes for America’s future with our first black President. I have to admit that while I had an overwhelming sense that Senator John McCain would have been a disastrous choice to lead America out of its doldrums using virtually the same policies that got us into our doldrums, I too looked forward to seeing Mr. Obama becoming America’s first black President. Sometime ago I wrote that Mr. McCain looked like he was about to become the first white guy to lose the White House to a black man. To McCain meant to be a white guy losing to a black man. To Barack meant to win and send the white guy packing. All of America was Baracking this week!
